Real estate groups are always bro af. If you really want to bro down do real estate PE, those guys have way more fun running around the world looking at different markets their thinking of investing in. Tons of time to get sloshed with your bros in foreign cities.

Seconded, real estate guys even at BBs and EBs are usually super chill. Not especially interested in the industry but have had great experiences with people in RE groups, honestly considering it at this point for that reason primarily

Hear me now, children, for my occupation is of much import. For 82 years I have been an oil man, a ‘baron’ some have called me. Now what does an oil baron do? The answer - crush your enemies! Grind their bones into dirt! Make them regret that they were ever born! Oil is not for the weak - it is the Earth’s milk, and only the strong may suckle at Mother’s teat!

He worked on the XFL deal? That's sick! I know a handful of sports teams have used this guy (my understanding is he used to be MBB --> NFL corp dev pre MBA). 

Honestly if it wasn't such a small industry that's dominated by certain MDs, sports banking would be the dream.
